My daughter and I had great fun with this recipe. We used iceing on them and decorated with spice drops, yogurt covered raisins, and candy coated easter egg candies. We used coconut dyed green for the grass. We also filled the plastic flower pot look-a-like containers we found at U.S. Toys with chocolate pudding. We mixed in crumbled up brownies into the pudding to give the flowers a good base for standing up.
